The PDR 1878 Capa Oscura cigar is one of four core-line blends under PDR Cigars' fan-favorite 1878 series (now known as PDR 1878 Recordando a Santiago Edicíon). Being one of the first boutique-style brands out of the DR, PDR Cigars first caught enthusiast's eyes with the 1878 series, offering big flavor at affordable price points.
Bridging the gap between natural and maduro, the PDR 1878 Capa Oscura cigar makes use of an oily Ecuadorian sun-grown oscuro wrapper. This savory leaf surrounds a Dominican Habano binder and Dominican Corojo fillers of the seco and ligero primings. This fine-tuned specimen was awarded Cigar & Spirits' No. 9 Cigar of the Year award in 2014, maintaining a consistent place in the humidors of cigar hobbyists to this day.
